    Yes, I think Astia would have been the ultimate choice; I tend to think of primarily films used for landscape work and forgot about Astia. Perhaps, Astia with either an 81A or a gold reflector. Velvia just does terrible things with skin tones.

    lol, thanks for the suggestions. I shot this portrait with Velvia because it's what I had in the camera at the time. And I actually really like the 'glow' it gives off. Not something I'd do professionally but for home use I can get some interesting effects.
    I don't like the gold reflector much as it gives too much 'shine'. Again, it depends on the situation. I like using NPH400 for colour portraits due to the gentle subtleness I can get.

    I find myself doing that quite often; that is one of the drawbacks to using 35mm. In my article: http://www.visionlandscapes.com/Arti...px?ArticleID=7 about most of the way down the page, there is an image of a man pouring sand into a bottle. I too, found myself with Velvia in the camera, and it took a lot of PS work to get his skin color right.
